In their new collection for Autumn/Winter 2017, Oliver Sweeney have combined innovative new techniques and materials with traditional craftsmanship to showcase their skills and attention for detail.
In keeping with the changing worldwide footwear mark, Oliver Sweeney gives centre stage to the trainer in this Autumn/Winter collection. The luxury trainer can be worn anywhere with pretty much anything and never look out of place. Hand crafted in Italy, this is an interesting smarter take on the casual shoe.
Dip dying has also been used on certain items in the collection. It’s an art rarely used for shoes these days due to its time consuming and tricky nature, but the shoes, constructed from undyed natural leather then dip-dyed, have a particularly eye-catching finish. The process adds a luxurious depth of colour and a polished, distressed look, and every pair of dip-dyed shoes is unique.
The leather coats found in this collection take inspiration from classic designs. Modern takes on vintage pieces, including an aviator jacket, biker jacket and field coat, are made using high quality materials, meaning they will age well and evolve over time.
The Goodyear Bologna is a formal dress shoe with comfort and flexibility at the forefront of its design. Perfecting the shoe took over a year, as it combines two constructions in one- the hardwearing Goodyear Welted construction with the flexibility and comfort of the Bologna construction.
